Lakeland mini food processor review

Read our full review of the small but powerful Lakeland mini food processor.


  • Best mini processor, small yet powerful


  •  limited uses, but what it does, it does well

First impressions of the Lakeland mini food processor

The Lakeland may be a mini processor, but this is a highly functional machine that works well for those who only want a small device for occasional use and without large quantities. The working size of the bowl is only 520ml, so it's great for smaller recipes, spice mixes and baby food.


We especially liked the comprehensive manual. Alongside safety notices and instructions on assembling, it has a handy table, listing foods that work well, amounts, and how to prepare them to get the most from the machine.

How easy is the Lakeland mini food processor to use?

The processor is light and sits well on the worktop, hardly moving thanks to suction feet. There’s a single knob with a pulse, off or chop setting on the front. A 200W motor on most processors would be ineffective, but on this tiny machine it works well, and most of the chopping of vegetables, herbs and even meat is easy and quick. We struggled a little with carrots, but these worked fine when we chopped them smaller.

The Lakeland was excellent for our pesto and Basa Gede, plus we also puréed chickpeas and made a batch of guacamole. For these recipes, the Lakeland came into its own thanks to its limited size and the small-quantity recipes.


Small but well-formed, the Lakeland mini processor is a handy, budget-priced machine that will tuck away in a cupboard and requires very little effort to set up.
